This refrigerator is ideal for single/two person household. I had the exact model purchased in July of 1998 at a cost $160.00 higher from a local appliance dealer in Elmhurst than the one purchased from ABT. Kinda wish I purchased the original frig from ABT then. I junked the old one without calling for service. I applied the service call ($125.00-175.00) towards the new unit, afterall, its eleven years old and what else is going to go. The improvements are slight but noticeable. Two separate bins vice one on my original unit plus there is a clear window on shelve above to see the contents of the bins without opening them. The handle is easier to grab being that it is round at the top. It now has a separate butter-keeper that I did not have before. There is a "full" shelf in the freezer from one side to the other vice a half shelf that kept falling if overloaded. The only complaint that I have with the new unit verses the old is that it appears that the freezer is smaller. The vents drawing the cold air down to the refrigerator section are pointed towards the door. The old unit was minus the vents on the floor. Apparently,they were on the top and less efficient.Lastly, I swear by Whirlpool as I have three other major appliances bearing their name and I couldn't be happier. Very reliable.

I am frustrated with the lower door gasket (freezer is on top). The top end corner area of door doesn't close all the way, letting out the cold air. So, for the past weeks I've tried everything such as: applying a little vasoline to help with the seal, putting scotch tape over area where air is coming out, taping the door shut tight, even putting little strips of leather inside the door gasket lip to prop it outward so as to grip onto the refrigerator better. At first I followed the trouble shooting suggestions in the product direction booklet. All have worked (separately or in combo) temporarily to some degree, but at the end of the day (or in a couple hours) the gasket loosens again and cold air escapes. It's now my daily routine to tape the door 3-4 times a day. Whirlpool was recommended to me by a relative who sells refrigerators at a major dept store, and I'm disappointed. Also at some point when I first got the fridge, it froze my food in the lower compartment. But now that doesn't happen, so it may have remedied itself. (or maybe the gasket leak keeps it from freezing). The upper freezer door gasket works great, and I'm very happy about that. For quality, overall all it is fair to average. I almost put in a poor rating due to the ongoing frustrating gasket issue on lower door, but the rest of the fridge (so far) seems okay.

VERY HARD TO REACH FOOD AND HARD TO 'LEVEL' EVEN BY EXPERTS
from Atlanta, GA, United States
Comments about Whirlpool White Top Freezer Refrigerator:
I chosen this model because it was the only one matching the color, size and texture, of the other new appliances in my kitchen... I had no idea how hard it would be for both me and my husband to reach the food inside. 1) Every time we try to pull something out we bump our heads into the freezer handle. 2) We have to bend way down to reach anything (sometimes our back hurts). 3) Too many small plastic drawers, awkward and difficult to open- reducing the space for larger things. 4) The design of it, puts way too much weight on the door (with high-heavy bottles) it makes the door open way out for no reason, in the way of kitchen traffic...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Still working but makes a little noise at times. Keeping things cool and fresh.
The design was very well thought out. It was perfect for the alloted space.

I bought this two months ago as a surprise for my wife, who happens to be very fastidious. When the appliance was delivered my wife told me that my choice was one of the better ones and, that she has reluctantly gave me four (4) STARS.
Small but mighty
from Richmond, VA
We bought this for an office/warehouse and it has worked out great. It's a small profile, but packs a lot into a small space. We were surprised!! There is plenty of room for a lot of items, and the freezer actually holds a ton; roomy enough for a bag of ice, too. We are very happy with this purchase.
Perfect for one person!

Perfect for my family
By Mary martt
Bought the fridge from a friend who had purchased a bigger model. We love this fridge , much much better than the mini fridge we had been living out of. Works perfect for my family's needs.

It is a good refrigerator. I bought this without looking at it on display. I wished I looked at it first. There are a few things I do not like about it. You can not remove the shelf out of the freezer, the freezer does not open all the way and you can not put large item's in the freezer door. The one positive thing is that you can put gallon containers in the fridge door.
